Day 2 Glitter Queens October Hop
Hello and welcome to day 2 of the Glitter Queens Blog Hop! I hope you enjoyed day 1 of our hop, I saw lots of great projects, I'm so inspired by everyone's creativity!
For today's project I wanted to continue on with the fall theme and make something for our Thanksgiving table. I thought it would be fun to have name tags/favors to help make our table a little more special. I couldn't decide on just one so I have 3 versions to share with you, I think I'm going to make 2 of the 3 for our holiday table this year.
Once again the stamp set's I chose to work with are 'French Foliage' and 'Faith in Nature', and I used the DSP 'Spice Cake'.
First I created the stand up cards, after making the easel card (from day1) I wanted to use the same method on the cs base as I did on the easel card. The cards measure 3 1/2" x 8" (score @ 4" and fold) I started out with a neutral base then stamped it with the leaves and distressing spots stamps. Then I added a layer of DSP, the other images were stamped then cut out and attached to the front.
Then I decided to make a combo favor/name tag, I actually did 2 versions, one is the sour cream container. I made it with 'Spice cake' DSP and decorated it with images from the 'French Foliage' set.
The last set is made with the mini milk carton Big Shot die, I love them they're so darn cute! I made one with 'more mustard' CS and the other with 'pool party' CS, the pool party is my fav, love the leaves that color. I used the mini clips to close so it will be easy to get to the treat.
For any of you considering becoming a demonstrator, this October is a great time, Stampin'Up! is giving new demo's a Big Shot!!! Wow, if I wasn't already a demo, that would make me sign up, I love my Big shot! and I'd love to have you join my team!
